Camp In Comfort On Isle Royale

Isle Royale is something special. Isolated, unspoiled, miles away from any kind of civilization, and spectacularly beautiful, this is the place to go when you want to get away from modern life and enjoy the wilderness.

However, getting away from modern life doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll be roughing it. Plenty of us love to spend the day out in nature, but would prefer a comfortable bed and a roof overhead when it’s time to turn in for the night. If this describes you, don’t let Isle Royale’s rugged atmosphere intimidate you! While there is a great deal of camping space for those who prefer that, the island also features plenty of amenities for everyone else.

Comfort In The Wilderness

Is tent camping not your idea of a good night’s sleep? Take a look at the other options available on Isle Royale.

  • Rock Harbor Lodge: Features sixty rooms, each with a private bath and a view of Lake Superior. Call (906) 337-4993 to make a reservation.
  • Housekeeping Cabins: Isle Royale offers twenty cabins complete with kitchenettes and supplies. These cabins can each accommodate up to six people.
  • Camper Cabins: Located in Windigo, these two cabins sleep up to six people and include electricity, a propane grill, and a picnic table.

While it’s a good idea to bring as much food and other supplies as you can, there are resources available if you get caught short or if you just don’t feel like cooking.

  • Lighthouse Restaurant and Greenstone Grill: Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, featuring delicious fresh lake trout.
  • Windigo Store & Marina: Come here to pick up anything from groceries to stove fuel. The store also offers pump-out service, watercraft rental, and laundry and shower facilities.
  • Gift Shop and Dockside Store: In addition to groceries and camping & fishing supplies, the gift shop offers beautiful handmade gifts, clothing, and souvenirs to remember your time on Isle Royale by.

The Isle Royale Visitors’ Center In Houghton, Michigan

Before you step onto our seaplane to start your journey to Isle Royale, swing by the visitors’ center in Houghton. This is where you can pay your park entrance fees, obtain a boating permit, and sign your kids up for the Junior Rangers program. You can also see a 25-minute orientation video about the park if you’d like, and if you’ve chosen to travel by sea, this is where the Ranger III ferry departs from.
